Enjoying the Weather

The weather was mild enough yesterday, my nephew got to “help” me with chores for the first time in a while. He was in and out of the barn between playing in the snow. This is the kind of winter weather we should have more of.


Collecting Pine Cones

Levi came with me to pick up wind-fallen apples. (I think he really just wanted to get a ride in the trailer.) While I was getting the apples, Levi started picking up pine cones for his “collection”. I managed to fill 4 buckets with apples, Levi filled 3 buckets with pine cones.

My helper for the day

Went to get another load of feeder pumpkins today. Since I had a little helper I decided to load up on squashes instead, as they would be easier for him to pick up. He helped me for quite a while before he got bored and wandered off to entertain himself. He collected milkweed seed pods so he could plant his own milkweed plants. (Sissy would not let him bring them home. Meanie!) Next thing I know he is trying to roll this enormous pumpkin across the field to the car. He wanted to bring it home for post-halloween carving. The car was already full by this point, so I was able to talk him out of that.
